Cafe Brazil Santa Cruz
Contrary to the cafe name and mission statement, Cafe Brasil Santa Cruz is so much more than a Brasil themed culinary experience. In fact, this eatery offers up some of the best traditional breakfast, brunch, and lunch options in Santa Cruz. Any basic breakfast at Cafe Brasil is made better with the mandatory side of cottage fried potatoes & slices of fresh Baguettes but the Create You Own Omelette is definitely one of the more popular directions to take when at this Santa Cruz AM institution. Our favorite dawn patrol or re-fuel option is found with their Juice Bar options, especially the Acai Bowl - a thick blend of acai w/strawberries, banana, apple juice and guarana syrup, served in a bowl, topped w/ granola, strawberries and banana.
However lunch time is when Brazil shines at Cafe Brasil and their lunch menu is a testament to this fact. With items ranging From Fried Plantain appetizers to the beefy Acebolado (topped w/sautéed onions, tomatoes, green onions) or the to-die-happily-for Fish Florentine (Grililed Tilapia over spinach topped w/ Hollandaise sauce) Cafe Brasil is worth returning to twice in one day, three if you can manage (they close early).
